To commemorate the 99th birthday of His Holiness Pramukh Swami Maharaj, children and teenagers of the Bal-Balika and Kishore-Kishori Mandals in Australia (Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth, Shepparton, Sydney) and New Zealand (Auckland, Christchurch, Hamilton, Wellington) participated in the ‘Race for Rajipo’ adhiveshan.
Based on the 315 shloks (verses) of the Satsang Diksha, the adhiveshan consisted of memorizing shloks based on three challenge levels from which the youngsters chose to participate: the Vinu Challenge (memorize 1–50 shloks), the Keshav Challenge (1–95 shloks) and the Mahant Challenge (1–130 shloks).
In total, 561 balaks and balikas and 275 kishores and kishoris took part. Participants were graded based on having memorized a certain percentage of their particular challenge. For each challenge level, the Gold Award required 90% or higher, Silver required 80–89% and Bronze required 70–79%.
